False. CP3 opted into past year of his $24.5m contract. So at worst, Houston gets to run it out for one year, if it doesn’t work, they can walk away from each other. You make it sound like Houston has no other choice than to offer the max to Paul. They don’t have to. And if you really believe that having CP3 instead of Beverly doesn’t get them over the Spurs in that series….. Maybe you want them to run it back again?
